Muffler Clamp

Use the stainless steel RLV clamp. Make sure you are not clamping so the muffler can slide in on the header and loosen up.

Who was the first to start using stainless steel clamps?

Local guys were using them when I moved to Indiana back in '84. That's as far back as I remember seeing them. There's a factory here that makes them. I've seen a lot of strange clamps on 2 cycles over the years as well -- some better than others.
Funny how prices come down on some things. Often times it has something to do with the country of origin.

I've personally never had a problem with the aluminum pinch clamps, but I've seen several of them laying on the track or had to have that "talk" with racers in the tech barn post-race.

No matter what clamp a guy uses, it still needs to be checked and safety wired.

OK Ok Ok I give.
I started using the "T" bolt version on all my engines when the Animal first hit the race track because they were better than the aluminum clamps.
My goodness i think that was 1999.
Now i use the other type that doesn't have the threaded stud sticking out.
I think they are more safe.
